Free Maria Sharapova Mark Luedtke Whenever you think things can’t get more stupid, you are mistaken. They can always get stupider. Just ask Maria Sharapova. Sharapova is an accomplished Russian tennis champion, having won five grand slam tournament championships, but until recently, she was best known for getting whipped by Serena Williams every time they […]

Reputation versus regulation One is beneficial, the other counterproductive Mark Luedtke You’ve probably heard of Comcast Corporation. It’s a corporate giant. Wikipedia describes its scope: “Comcast Corporation, formerly registered as Comcast Holdings, is an American multinational mass media company and is the largest broadcasting and largest cable company in the world by revenue. It is […]

Bankers gone wild By Mark Luedtke After nearly a decade of ZIRP (zero interest rate policy), Janet Yellen’s Federal Reserve (Fed) is considering NIRP (negative interest rate policy). This literal downward spiral orchestrated by our rulers is the major cause of the world economy’s downward spiral. Interest rates are a price like any other. In […]

Worst schools in the state By Mark Luedtke Imagine you owned Dayton City Schools, and The Dayton Daily News reported the following about your schools: “Dayton Public Schools had the worst performance index in Ohio on last year’s state tests, according to the school report cards released Thursday. Last year, Dayton was second-worst among Ohio’s […]

Waves of wasted tax dollars Mark Luedtke Like our economy is cracking up, so is establishment pseudoscience, and for the same reason: government coercion has perverted both to the breaking point. Several stories highlight the contradictions in cosmology that will be dramatically resolved, causing reverberations throughout the sciences. The recent claim of the discovery of […]

Real populism Mark Luedtke You don’t have to take my word for it that the US is a socialist country and has been since progressives took over both parties at the beginning of the last century. Take it from avowed socialist, senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Speaking of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, Sanders […]

The establishment is losing it Mark Luedtke Because people with access to government’s levers of power are typically aligned against us, it’s easy to think of rulers as a monolithic group. Some have tried to draw organizational charts as if rulers were organized like government or a corporation. They aren’t. Our rulers are organized in […]

Goodbye, LexisNexis By Mark Luedtke I hate to be the bearer of more bad news, but it’s happened again. Contrary to propaganda misrepresenting bubble activity as economic growth, Dayton’s long collapse continues apace with the move of LexisNexis’s technical group to Raleigh, North Carolina. I can’t help but laugh when propagandists claim Dayton is a […]

Rewarded for failure Mayor Whaley honored for failing Dayton schools by Mark Luedtke For normal people, one of the maddening aspects of government is its rewarding of failure. In the private sector, if your business doesn’t make a profit, it goes bankrupt. If you fail at your job, you get fired. To a great extent, […]

Theft replaces profits Mark Luedtke In his new book about Dayton’s great innovators, “Dayton’s Children,” Mark Martel shows some things never change. Angered at Dayton government’s system of patronage, poor schools and having to pay bribes to get valuable work accomplished, John Patterson confronted his obstructers. “He convoked a meeting of a thousand local leaders, […]

Travesty in the jungle By Mark Luedtke It’s tough being a fan of a small market sports team. Top free agents gravitate toward large markets. They get less TV coverage and, therefore, less TV money. But the most frustrating aspect is the calls tend to go their way. This is such a well-known phenomenon in […]

Price inflation, crash or both Mark Luedtke By all measures the world economy is grinding to a halt, and while government’s propagandists claim the US economy is growing, indicators say otherwise. David Stockman reports, “With each passing day the evidence [the US economy is slowing] mounts, and this morning’s trade data was a doozy. During […]

The government is an armed gang Mark Luedtke Imagine a gang of armed men showed up at your house and stole money from you. Suppose they went door to door and stole money from your neighbors and everybody else. Naturally, they would spend a percentage of that money on themselves. They would live large, buying […]

Year in Review: 2015 Mark Luedtke Perpetual wars dominated the 2015 news. President Obama extended the Afghan war, but the scariest new development was U.S. and NATO threats against Russia on multiple fronts. The war in Syria garnered the most coverage. The CIA and U.S. allies Turkey, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and others have […]

Democracy in name, oligarchy in reality Mark Luedtke In his polemic “Democracy, The God That Failed,” Hans-Hermann Hoppe argued, contrary to popular thought, democracy is a worse system of government than monarchy, which is worse than government ordered by natural rights. One of the reasons is the temporary duration of power in a democracy. Monarchs […]

Starting WWIII in Syria NATO ally Turkey shoots down Russian fighter plane By Mark Luedtke I’m skeptical of the criticism of teaching school children to duck and cover during a nuclear attack. Critics act like all schools will automatically be vaporized, but they’re wrong. Nobody knows how far away a nuclear blast might occur, and […]
